Are you kidding me? ROFL. Dude, I have posted evidence, and as Otis has in his sig, "I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you." You can spend the time and effort reading the copious info I've provided (and I'm pretty sure none, or very little, of which has come from CNN) and think/decide for yourself because me posting more seems like you want me to waste my time. Discuss in detail what I've provided instead of asking me to show you more, or to simply sum up in my own words - I have already.

As for people around him being charged for crimes not related to the topic (collusion), that's like saying Hillary is guilty of something because of people around her getting charged (like Wiener). Show me some substance or continue with your CNN obsessive bullshit. Sorry SC, I like you but you lack of facts as a scientist is very puzzling.
The Slime isn't being revealed to your sources evidently, but soon even they will have to start admitting this whole thing was corrupt from the beginning (and I'm not talking about Trump). I'll admit I was wrong if proven so, will you?
Some are missing a plot piece in memogate - Carter Page was under surveillance in 2013. Hired by Trump after that. The dossier came into existence after that. Why are republicans and the WH more desperate to smear FBI than find out whether Page was part of a criminal conspiracy?
This is a diagram of the @DevinNunes memo by Vox. There are exactly two problems with it. One, Page was bragging about being in contact with Russian spies since 2013, when he was parading as a big shot in the oil business, more than two years before Trump announced his candidacy.
Two, the Steele dossier being a Clinton venture was debunked about a hundred times now. It was originally funded by the very conservative Washington Free Beacon, and eventually taken over by a Democratic donor who never made use of it... freebeacon.com/uncategorized/fusion-gps-washington-free-beacon/
In case you don't remember, many top conservatives hated Trump right up until he became the party's nominee, which is exactly when the Free Beacon cut off the funding spigot on the dossier. Marc Elias also cut the funding after Clinton lost the election, never using the info.
Does @DevinNunes really think the FBI ignored Page telling everyone how many Russian spies he was meeting for almost four years, but an oppo dossier Clinton somehow funded through a hostile right wing publication until the RNC shook them out of their stupor and they lied to ...get a FISA warrant through a panel of judges and officials so gullible, or so pro-Clinton, they didn't ask for any justification or thought that Page's bragging about being scouted as an SVR asset wasn't a reason to monitor him, but Steele's raw intel nuggets were? Seriously?
Because this is exactly what he's suggesting. This is Uranium One all over again. If you ignore literally 90% of the backstory, as well as who was involved and why, it sounds suspicious, but if you do ten minutes of research, the whole conspiracy theory begins to fall apart.https://twitter.com/GregAFish/status/959464732661989376

On #MemoDay we have a NOTHING BURGER! What does the misleading #NunesMemo NOT SAY?
-Doesn't say relevant parts of Dossier are false
-Doesn't say Russia investigation based on Dossier
-Doesn't say no probable cause for Carter Page
-Doesn't say @FBI / DOJ violated any specific law
The Nunes memo is a dud. I'm surprised it has generated so much attention. There's nothing much to it.
I'll write a thread about it, but the memo itself is trying to make something out of very little.
THREAD: What should we make of the Nunes memo? (Short answer: Not much.)https://twitter.com/renato_mariotti/status/959485307384102913
So the Nunes Memo is even more underwhelming and transparent than anyone could have expected, but let's not forget the lengths Republicans went to to try and obstruct justice. 1/https://twitter.com/JYSexton/status/959482889275625473
In fact, if anything, the Mueller investigation appears to have been picking up steam in the past three weeks—and homing in on a series of targets.
We speak about the “Mueller probe” as a single entity, but it’s important to understand that there are no fewer than five (known) separate investigations under the broad umbrella of the special counsel’s office—some threads of these investigations may overlap or intersect, some may be completely free-standing, and some potential targets may be part of multiple threads. But it’s important to understand the different “buckets” of Mueller’s probe.
As special counsel, Mueller has broad authority to investigate “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump,” as well as “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation,” a catch-all phrase that allows him to pursue other criminality he may stumble across in the course of the investigation.
We also know there’s significant relevant evidence that’s not yet public: Both Flynn and Papadopoulos traded cooperation and information as part of their respective plea deals, and none of the information that they provided has become public yet.
